Who, What, When, Where, and Why?

Of course this is the standard line of questioning to almost anything in life that can apply to anything really… Right now, it is:

Who: am I?

What: am I going to do?

When: are things going to be stable?

Where: do I belong?

Why: am I here?

First off, let me apologize or being MIA in the blog world. I’ve been busy trying to find a new job. (I had to leave my old job because I graduated and was no longer a student. You have to be a student to work at an on campus student helper, and once you graduate, you can no longer work as a student helper.)

So. let me say. Interviewing and submitting applications has been a very long and drawn out process, with little success.

The job market is very tight in terms of what I want to do, what my experiences are, and what is actually available.

It’s been a month since I’ve been out of work, and it’s starting to wear me down. You don’t realize it, but searching for a job takes a toll on you physically as well as mentally. Your self esteem starts to plummet. I have a degree in Marketing as well as a double major in Entrepreneurship. Why can’t I find a job? Why won’t anyone hire me? Even with my degree, I don’t qualify for a lot of jobs because I don’t have the “experience”. How am I supposed to have that experience straight out of College?

There has also been a string of unfortunate events that have been happening lately. And I’m talking about REAL unfortunate. -_- Like the kind of unfortunate that gives me nightmares.

It is a time that I’m sure most people question their purpose in life. The reason why they are put on this Earth. As well as what their aim in life is, and what is most important to them to achieve not only quantity but quality of life.

This is that time for me, and boy let me tell you, it is one long, uphill struggle. (Most of my life has been an uphill struggle, but this is by far the most trying time in my life yet.)

I have so much more to vent, but I really could just go on forever. How do people keep such optimistic views in times like these?

    You’re a great person and really well qualified! I think it’s just so much harder now because of the economy that companies have to be super selective. Keep your head up. I know you’ll find something. 🙂

    Sometimes we spend more time analysing and pondering instead of taking action. When in a rut, go ahead and do something, start something, or learn something.

    And surround yourself with positive people, and you’ll see positivity itself.

    Where OPPORTUNITY = LUCK + PREPARATION + ACTION. No guessing which part of the equation we get to control. Cheers, and I mean it. ; )
